Cheering for the other side...Makes an impact.

It's wonderful how this story keeps spreading.  Let all of us be able to catch faith in action.

Two schools’ football meeting has national impact | Sports |
Gainesville State School and Grapevine Faith Christian came together in Grapevine for one night, for one high school football game.

Two and a half months later, across the country, people are still talking about that game.

"That Game."

It is all over the Internet. You can find more than 450 blogs and message boards that have discussed the game.

"Wow." "Beautiful." "Amazing." "Why didn’t you warn me I’d need Kleenex?"

Both schools have been flooded with phone calls and e-mails.

"You have inspired me to help others." "Is there anything I can do to help?" "How can I send your school a donation?"

There remains a fascination over the Friday night that Faith Christian fans made their guests from the correctional facility feel like the home team. The spirit line. The banner. The Faith fans and cheerleaders on the Gainesville State side, actually cheering for the other team.
